think some of the issues in the uk at least perceptionwise is invariably avoided. he ceded to the publishing spin but i think over the longer time frame he certainly created a lot of value. i think sometimes he's bucked the trend doing things like starting fox news on an organic basis, which wasn't popular on the street. over the long term there certainly is a discount in the stock. and i think the stock would go up if there is management changes. >> that's what i was going to ask you about. you feel that if chase carey became the ceo the stock would take off. >> he's more of a technocrat. he would like to focus on entertainment and sports. the issue is more politicized in the uk than here. i think chase could ultimately be ceo on an interim basis but i think in the long term there will be a murdoch that leads the company. and you have to remember, you know, rupert's mother, dame elizabeth, 103, 104, still alive down in australia -- >> he has good genes? >> good genes. >> does it matter if they hold board positions? the murdochs already control the company with almost 40% of the s
